FORT WALTON BEACH — A vehicle crash on Eglin Parkway snarled traffic in both directions on Saturday afternoon.
The accident occurred about 3:45 p.m. at the intersection of Highway at Mariner Plaza shopping center. All southbound lanes and two northbound lanes were closed for about 45 minutes, said Jo Soria, spokeswoman for the Fort Walton Beach Police Department.
A Dodge Caravan driven by Christie Walker was crossing Eglin from Marina Plaza to Highway Avenue with the green light when it was struck by a southbound Honda SUV that ran the red light, Soria said.
Walker was taken to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
Garrad Hoskins, the Honda’s driver, was cited for running a red light, Soria said.
